This memorial very powerfully conveys the experiences of our Vietnam veterans. Standing inside it can be eerily quiet. The names of all of our people who died in that war are in the ring that is suspended over the inside of the memorial.

A remarkable memorial with creative design remembering those that served at Vietnam . This is not to forget the sacrifices made from the other conflicts remembered in the parade that are special in their own ways too .

This area of the Anzac Parade leading up to the War Memorial is so well laid out. Not in you face but tactfully done. A great legacy to those who were conscripted or otherwise involved in this conflict
